Bunions are a genetic foot deformity that can cause a lot of pain. A bunion can alter the look of your foot and make it hard to wear sandals or go barefoot in front of others. It can also make shoes fit poorly and cause pain with every step.
Did you know that bunions are more than a bump? They're actually a 3D problem. And, unless you treat all 3 dimensions of a bunion, you may end up unhappy with the results; or worse yet - have your bunion come back again. If a patient fails conservative measures for the pain Lapiplasty® surgical correction is a great option to fix the problem.
What is Lapiplasty ®?
Lapiplasty ® 3D Bunion Correction™ is designed to fix the true, root cause of your bunion. Lapiplasty ® is a cutting edge procedure that can straighten the bunion to improve pain, the shape of your foot and make shoes fit better. This procedure uses advanced technology to correct the alignment of the entire joint. Patients spend around 4-6 weeks in a walking boot. You can do all of your daily activities while wearing the walking boot and people are usually back in shoes in 6-8 weeks.
